Serious Case Reviews
All Local Safeguarding Children Boards are required to conduct Serious Case Reviews in accordance with Working Together 2015.
Serious Case Reviews must be undertaken for every case where abuse or neglect is known or suspected and either a child dies or is seriously harmed, and there are concerns about how organisations or professionals worked together to safeguard the child.
The purpose of a Serious Case Review is to identify lessons to be learned to improve safeguarding practice and for them to be disseminated to the Local Authority and Safeguarding Board Partners. More detail about the process can be found in the
